I love mine in my truck that I've bought a set for my car too. Haven't installed yet. Great looking front end I want to get the same hood. Mind telling how much I would be looking at to just get the hood and painted.
The whole new front end is because after owning the truck for 4 months I hit a deer at 65 mph. Final bill was 7210.00 dollars! The stock PLASTIC chrome slt grille was 650! I took it to a bodyshop where I know the owner pretty well and he worked with me on ordering what I wanted to change the front end. Here's the kicker, his cost for a sport hood was 1600 bucks! I found one on the internet from a dealer in NJ for 749. When the body shop got it, it needed some minor body work done to be perfect. He figures that the cheaper hoods being sold by some dealers are probably factory rejects. Makes sense, he said with labor the 749 hood still came in cheaper than the 1600 one. As for what it would cost to paint it, I can't say because it was painted with the rest of the truck. They also did a great job of blending the new front end with the rest of the truck.
